[Video] Prefab Built Module At A Time


[Update – video no longer available] Pardon the pre-roll on the video below, but the LA Times has some excellent interior / exterior footage of a Marmol Radziner Prefab being constructed in Venice, California.  As you can see, it was put together module-by-module with much of the interior already in place.  Regularly featured on the MR Blog, this house appears to be for Leo Marmol himself and has been referred to as the “Palms House.”  The Palms House is 2800 square feet, made with 13 modules, and includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a living room/dining room, kitchen, office, and a spacious deck/outdoor area.

It’s fun watching the video, because you can see Ron Radziner’s enthusiasm bubble inside as he explains one of his company’s newest creations.  These guys are having fun, you can just tell.

    I’m wondering how many years a house like this will last ?

      Hey M!hai, what’s happening?! That house has steel bones, it’s not going anywhere for a long long time.

    I don’t know about this house in particular, but as a general rule prefabricated houses have much more stringent construction standards than on-site builds. So, these houses should be every bit as solid as a traditional home.

    The site for this house was along one of the routes of the CABoom show home tour this year. If you want to see some really great homes, just wander through Venice Beach sometime.

      Tai – I didn’t realize you’re in SLC, too. Great work with your latest renovations!

      You’re right, though, there’s tons of cool stuff in Venice.
